:42: Tony La Rusta Returning.
* Rhodes: "It's not that he was outmanaged by Dusty Baker - Dusty didn't do a damn thing. He outmanaged himself."
I don't think the roster construction is the main problem. MLB players CAN get sharper at fundamentals. Managers CAN get wiser at using data to inform defensive positioning & bullpen usage. Get smarter & better, on the field. Look at the Giants coaching staff and methodology. https://t.co/bUXv5BHQB7— M@ (@MattSpiegel670) October 12, 2021
Lance Lynn threw 76 pitches. 74 of them were fastballs (97.4%), the highest fastball rate by any starting pitcher in a playoff game in the pitch tracking era (since 2008).— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) October 7, 2021
The Astros hit .290 against fastballs in the regular season, best in MLB. pic.twitter.com/tddi5VVZyE
9:49: Steve Stone's Suckage.
Yes, the bats did not show up with enough HRs. Yes, the SPs had a brutal 4 games. But also, from the 2020 playoffs to the 2021 postseason, the White Sox have not gotten smarter. We feared it in the offseason, watched it during 162, and sadly felt the effects in the playoffs.— M@ (@MattSpiegel670) October 12, 2021
The White Sox' defensive positioning issue is such an easy fix, and will be an emblem of the offseason for a lot of us. You want to be the best playoff team you can possibly be? Use all the info available, and catch up. You did it with your pitch lab. This is next.— M@ (@MattSpiegel670) October 12, 2021
20:50: Costly Kimbrel.
25:50: The Unfantastic Four.
* Astros, Red Sox, Dodgers, Braves.
Analysis: The Dodgers' Game 5 pitching plan was based on data. It worked because of people. https://t.co/7NvBKRuoA5— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) October 15, 2021
30:44: Cubs Can Finally Afford A GM Again.
41:21: Bears On The Run.
Bears placed RB Damien Williams on reserve/COVID-19 list https://t.co/BfYWq6fWu8— Alyssa Barbieri (@AlyssaBarbieri) October 14, 2021
* Rhodes: The Bears just acquired their identity from the Raiders.
1:01:52: Eyes On The Sky.
1:03:33: Boo Blackhawks.
1:05:52: Red Stars Rising.
